, outside the mainstream, and paul ryan questioning or calling into question the president's faith in effect, saying that his policies would undermine the judeo christian roots of this society. >> yeah. it's pretty desperate. it's vicious, it's against the best tenants of anybody's faith to respect somebody else's faith. even if you're an evangelical zell lot like mr. ryan appears to be in the embrace of his faith, have enough graciousness to acknowledge the other guy might have some religion, some truck with god, some divine spark well, happen to disagree on policy i don't have to question his belief in god. this is the kind of billy graham/franklin graham/paul ryan approach here, to say you call into question the integrity of the other person's faith to bolster your own and articulate your special ties with the divinity. you're playing the god card or grace card. i got more grace than you, more mercy than you. >> and it's somehow furthers this that i think very much still exists out there in some parts of the country where folks are more conservative or less getting -- getting less informa
ask you about the choice of paul ryan to be involved in a negotiation when he has seemed to dig his heels in a fairly ideological way for the last several years? >> well, it's something that speaker boehner has done to exert his influence over the house republican conference. the idea from my conversations with boehner aides is that look, paul ryan is a very popular figure within the house republican conference. any possible deal or compromise must have his fingerprints on it. but make no mistake, alex, this is not going to be paul ryan as the chief negotiator of this deal. it's still going to be john boehner, john boehner's people, they are battle tested when it comes to these deficit deals and having paul ryan in the room is simply a way for john boehner to try to avoid and watch out -- avoid any consternation within his conference and watch out for his flank which as we know from 2011 he's had a mighty difficult time getting things through his group of fellow republicans who are not too keen on any compromise, be much less one in this case that could increase tax rates. >> it see
in the week about paul ryan being deputized being part of these debates, we haven't heard from him yet, but michael he has not made an appearance yet so far. we know cantor has sort of been on the sidelines too but ryan sort of -- this sort of statement that he was going to be the person, perhaps, as you point out, joy, to sign off for the most restive parts of the caucus and give his messi inble a deal. >> i don't know how to explain that, although i think the white house, i'm sure, will plausibly argue ryan was part of a ticket just repudiated and he is at the low ebb of his credibility. a separate argument, somewhat contradicts that one, romney's campaign in the end was not so much about the ryan plan. you know, "the wall street journal" and sort of movement conservatives were thrilled when romney chose paul ryan and said we're going to have an election an the big issues, entitlement reforms, policy wonk's dream and that was not the romney campaign. romney did everything he could to water down his relationship with the ryan plan. and so it was -- it took a back seat. i just don't kn
three days, will head to ohio, new hampshire, colorado, iowa, virginia, and pennsylvania. paul ryan will also be in pennsylvania on sunday trying to bring the state back into play before tuesday. meanwhile, president obama will spend the entire day today in ohio. he'll hit wisconsin, iowa, virginia, new hampshire, florida and colorado in the coming days. the president will close his campaign by calling on two of his most bold-faced surrogates, jay-z and bruce springsteen. they will perform in ohio on monday. but if team o has the boss to close the deal romney land has meat loaf and ricky skaggs. >> i want to thank ricky skrags -- skrugs rather -- skrags, can't get it right -- for entertaining. >> ricky skaggs. batting for the president, sober minded political figures including colin powell and michael bloomberg and for romney, sober minded political figures including the donald. that said both candidates have tinseltown on their side. for obama, eva longoria, george clooney, sarah jessica parker. and for mitt romney, clint eastwood and mr. burns. >> mitt strapped his mutt to the roo
but to say paul ryan is going to bring forth a solution to the fix, we're going to gather votes for it. i guarantee you you'll have a democratic substitute and if you can get enough republicans to vote for it, terrific. >> if only the americans can see the look of befudslement and confusion when newt gingrich says things like no house republican should be bamboozled into this idea. bamboozled into this idea that the president just won re-election and the senate is still firmly in democratic hands. >> right. what he's basically saying is, to rank and file republicans vote with your district and forget about the phone call that john boehner had with all of you folks saying get in line, we actually have to have a record to run on in 2014. we can't be obstructionists anymore. the american people have spoken in the election, let's do something. newt gingrich, former speaker of the house, failed presidential candidate, giving advice to the republican party, i would advise the republican party to take that with a huge salt lick. >> yeah. >> ashley, you were on the trail covering romney and there
close election. >> despite a scoreboard of 332 to 206, congressman paul ryan refuses to admit that president obama might have a mandate to push his agenda, a big part of which includes raising taxes on high earners. this week the president is holding court with ally and opponents to discuss the upcoming fiscal cliff. yesterday, at a meeting with progressive leaders the president said he would not give in to republican demands to extend all of the bush tax cuts. today he will meet with business leaders. the discussions underscore the president's opposing constituencies, but according to new york magazine's jonathan chaits the president has to do what he want -- joining us now from washington, "new york" magazine columnist by god jonathan chait. hello, my friend. >> thank you. >> jonathan, so the president met with progressive leaders yesterday and i think gave them some welcome news. how does he handle the meeting with the business leaders today some. >> i wasn't there. they didn't invite me. i'm not a business leader. >> you think he has a clear -- i won't say mandate but the
i think. >> i understand that logic. but then why are house republican leaders bringing paul ryan in to sell this to the caucus? paul ryan, whose returned -- i can't even say it -- hunting pheasant, hunting pheasant -- >> venting some steam against what may be an inevitable reality. election day -- i had good vibes and i think millions of others did, because there were clear priorities when people re-elected the president. they wanted jobs and growth and they wanted tax hikes on the top 2%, the richest in this country, who have had all the income growth in this last year. i think, you know, progressives, citizens of conscience, need to be one, reframe this debate it's about jobs and growth and not get deficit obsessed. inside the beltway there's a well-funded campaign to have deficit reduction be the top thing, but it's jobs and growth. bill crystal had a come to jesus moment -- >> in favor of higher taxes. >> their capital gains and dividends and carried interest, private hedge fund taxes, the main thing is that at a time of great economic insecurity, particularly the elderly, wh
the campaign is afoot for the weekend. for the week the task of campaigning has been left to paul ryan and joe biden. >> and president clinton. >> right. >> but to surrogates, the notion the two guys running for the highest office in the land are not actively campaigning in the homestretch. jeb bush, i don't know if he was called by the romney campaign and asked to say something harsh about the president, but he certainly did not mince words yesterday in coral gables. let's take a listen to what he had to say. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others, starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and to find common ground i thought that was, a, surprising from jeb bush, someone who is a republican, former republican governor, and certainly a surrogate for the romney campaign, but harsh words, especially given what the president was doing yesterday. >> yeah, i think that's true. and governor bush has not been the most hot eye
